Moabi - Hanami
Moabi from Toulouse, France, collected three own pieces and two remixes for this fantastic release called "Hanami" (japanese for "enjoying the beauty of flowers").
Set up between Electronica, IDM, Experimental music and Ambient, all five pieces have a very unique, deep feeling. An impressive mix of beautiful melodies, intense atmosphere and twinkle-toed beats. Starting with the more beat-orientated "Hey You" the EP gets calmer with every following track, finding it's end in the quiet and subtle "Moll"-piece with over nine minutes of glitches and hounted melodies.
Warm your cold winter-feet with this warming organic sounds.
Tracks 1 to 5 written and produced by Moabi (c) Toulouse, France.
Tracks 2 and 4 are remixes of the following artists: Manekinekod and Five String Sam

unoriginal but apassable
an highly unoriginal work which is very annoying. but its got nice melodies and tones and DOES work. the artwork is lovely but i just don't feel this is anything to shout about...surrounded by so much good work on resting bell, this is one of the poorer releases.

A well created ambient soundscape
The whole album is rather laid back. Track 2 is the track to listen to.

nice release this. one of the best at resting bell and nice christmas present although tonally not as interesting as the offtheksy and IDH releases, it moves along very nicely with lovely melody. its much better than the 2 releases before this which were hugely disappointing after IDH and offthesky seemed an upward turn. This and the Lost Lanterns release put RB right back on track for a great 2008.
